Into The Mystic


S heesh. I started this post and forgot about it. Until now. I try to post at noon my time. Obviously, I’m late. Very late. Sorry about that. Let’s talk about stupidity and failure. There is a guy who posts as NOLAphotoguild on Instagram. Today he wrote an eight page screed about freedom. I betContinue reading “Into The Mystic”

The Weather


F inally. It took a few days to find my footing but I knew that it would eventually come. So, as far as I’m concerned this is my first picture of the new year. It’s headed a little more in the direction that I’d like Storyteller to go, for as long as Storyteller exists. IContinue reading “The Weather”

Living in a Ghost Town


T his picture. This very one. I wanted to publish it today even thought we aren’t quite to this point. Why? Because I could and felt like it. That’s reason enough even if it isn’t the best reason. I suppose I could tell you some story about my thinking, but there isn’t any. Stories orContinue reading “Living in a Ghost Town”

Love and Mercy


A nyone who has been around Storyteller for any length of time knows that there I are things I almost never do. I rarely post twice in one day. I rarely post another photographer’s work unless we are working on something together. And, I never post a picture without a credit line. All of thoseContinue reading “Love and Mercy”

Till It Shines


We had snow. It melted. We had rain. The water stuck around long enough to freeze. We had snow on top of that. I ran some errands a few miles from home. I came to this street and thought, “Oh oh.” I had no idea if it was just wet or icy. It was wetContinue reading “Till It Shines”

Just Want To See


Pastel Sky, looking like a water color. That wasn’t my intention, but that’s what happened. In this day of all things digital photographers are trying to make their work look like anything but photography. I understand the need to take things to the next level. I do it myself more times than not. Just don’tContinue reading “Just Want To See”

Postcard Blues


You could see it coming from miles away. The storm. The cold. The wind. Luckily, we didn’t have heavy rainfall. Maybe a couple of inches. But, we are having a cold spell that is as cold and long as anything in recent memory. I’ll tell you more about this picture in the right hand column.Continue reading “Postcard Blues”

Day After Day


The cold weather came. It won’t leave. As I write this the temperature outside is 24 degrees. We should warm up sometime tomorrow. Luckily, the rain stopped falling. The sun is shining through broken clouds. Clouds hold warmth in, so you know what this means. Colder still. Yesterday was the saddest, coldest, wettest Mardi GrasContinue reading “Day After Day”

Happy Mardi Gras


We ate it. If truth be told since carnival season began on January 6, we ate three. Three king cakes. During a normal Mardi Gras year we’d eat way more than that, but they’d be consumed at the brunch that we would have had yesterday. The subject of this picture is what’s left after eatingContinue reading “Happy Mardi Gras”
